At 8:30 p.m. local time on January 23, the Suzhou Chinese Orchestra held the fifth concert of the "Chinese Music with Suzhou Charm" grand orchestra European Tour sponsored by the National Art Fund at the Como Grand Theatre in Italy. Zhang Hong, Vice Consul General of the Chinese Consulate General in Milan, and more than 1,000 local audiences attended the concert.
Zhang Hongrao, Deputy Consul-General of the Chinese Consulate General in Milan, watched the performance with great interest, and highly praised the orchestra's artistic standard and the positive significance of hosting the European tour. She pointed out: "International cultural and artistic exchange is an important part of promoting the construction of "The Belt and Road" and promoting friendly cooperation between countries. With the advent of the Spring Festival, the Suzhou Chinese Orchestra has brought such wonderful performances that the Italian local people have a deeper understanding of our Chinese music, further deepened the mutual understanding between the Chinese and Italian people, and greatly promoted the friendship between the two countries. Our Chinese Consulate General in Milan is very grateful for the arrival of the Suzhou Chinese Orchestra. We hope that the Orchestra will come into our area again in the future and make further contributions to Sino-Italian cultural exchanges. I sincerely wish the orchestra's European tour a great success!
